Equipment & Uniform


All students must have the following equipment each day: a black pen, pencil, ruler, rubber, planner (provided), a bag, sports kit (on days when it is required) and a scientific calculator (these can be purchased in school).

Personal Property

Money and valuables should never be left in school-bags or coat pockets. Items may be handed to the school office or to a teacher for safe-keeping. Items of personal property and clothing should be clearly named. The school does not accept responsibility for lost items but we will gladly help with problems, provided sensible precautions have been taken.

All items found are handed into one of the school offices
